Knee Replacement Surgery.

I'm  sorry I will not be playing along in the different challenges for a few weeks or so.

The Surgery isn't so bad and neither is the pain, I am having a issue getting around  a bit, but my walker is a blessing. the worst part of this is, not being able to do the daily things I am so very use to doing everyday.. I can not sit very long by my desk and card area. that is when the pain starts.

I'm looking forward to getting back to normal, they say it take one full year to heal from this surgery, but I will be able to get back to the little things .

Can't wait to get a good nights sleep, and get back to what I was able to do before. this has been a long over due surgery, been waiting for a full year to get this done.
 
this is 2 weeks ago, but it is still difficult for me to get around. I am so very Blessed to have such a wonderful husband, Friends and family.

I am hoping to get back soon, I am willing my body isn't as of yet. with the proper therapy and time I will be just fine.

I want to thank everyone for your loving kind words and prayers  .

God Bless
